Tasting Notes

Robert Parker 88/100

This estate's moderate to inexpensive wines can turn out to be good surprises. The 1975 Haut-Bages-Liberal has always been a powerful, concentrated, muscular wine. It still possesses an opaque dark ruby/garnet color, followed by a moderately intense nose of road tar, herbs, cedar, truffles, and black fruit that is somewhat dominated by the more earthy/animal side. Full-bodied, coarse and rustic, revealing exciting levels of extract, this wine will probably never come into total harmony. Nevertheless, it exhibits plenty of richness, intensity, and personality. Drink it now and over the next 15+ years.

Vineyard Information

Haut-Bages Libéral, a great growth Pauillac, takes its name from the Bages plateau where part of its wines are located, and also from its first known owners, the Libéral family. The vines are planted on a truly excellent vineyard site which has been consolidated since the early 18th century from among the finest land in Pauillac. Haut-Bages Libéral's largest vineyard plot borders on Château Latour; the rest adjoins Château Pichon Baron Longueville, among other illustrious neighbours. The estate was acquired by the Cruse family in 1960, and then by the Villars family in 1983. The winemaking facilities were entirely renovated and modernised, and the replanted vines have since reached maturity. ©ugcb
